Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Reimagining Medical Education Initiative. Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Disease
This comprehensive medical school microbiology, immunology & infectious diseases course was created collaboratively between Stanford, UW, Duke, UCSF, and University of Michigan (made possible by support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). The course is organized into playlists; each contains a patient-centered story to underscore clinical relevance of basic science concepts. Playlists also include short, content-rich, narrated PowerPoint videos from experts in the field. The videos are to be accompanied by in-class interactive sessions. Examples of interactive session facilitator guides are posted in select playlist descriptions.
